ASICS has introduced the GEL-NIMBUS™ 26, marking a significant advancement in their flagship cushioned running shoe series. The latest model features the innovative HYBRID ASICSGRIP™ technology, combined with AHARPLUS™ outsole rubber. This blend ensures superior traction, enhanced softness, and remarkable durability, particularly on wet and slippery surfaces.
Improved Midfoot Fit and Breathability
The GEL-NIMBUS™ 26 boasts an engineered knit upper, refining the midfoot fit. The redesigned eyelet construction contributes to a softer, yet more supportive hold. The upper’s lightweight, breathable knit material enhances overall comfort and performance.
Advanced Cushioning Technology
Continuing the legacy of its predecessor, the GEL-NIMBUS™ 26 utilizes FF BLAST™ PLUS ECO cushioning. This technology, made with 24% bio-based content from sugar cane waste, offers lightweight, energetic foam cushioning for a cloud-like experience over various distances.
PureGEL™ Technology for Softer Landings
ASICS has incorporated its rearfoot PureGEL™ technology into the GEL-NIMBUS™ 26. This material is 65% softer than conventional GEL™ technology, ensuring exceptionally soft landings.
Aesthetic and Comfort Enhancements
The shoe’s knit collar construction not only gives it a modernized look but also provides a luxurious step-in experience.
Commitment to Comfort and Sustainability
Rohan van der Zwet, Senior Product Marketing Manager Performance Running at ASICS EMEA, emphasized the brand’s dedication to comfort in running shoes. The GEL-NIMBUS™ 26 also features CO2e labeling, reflecting ASICS’ commitment to sustainability and transparency in its performance.
